The Rockies led 3-2 after Randal Grichuk drew a bases-loaded walk against Nick Pivetta (3-4) that forced in Mike Moustakas, and Colorado added to its lead when Boston first baseman Triston Casas made a fielding error on a Nolan Jones grounder that allowed Ryan McMahon to score and make it 4-2
There was a rain delay of nearly 1 1/2 hours following the Casas error. The Red Sox avoided further damage in the top of the 10th before pulling within a run in the bottom half of the inning. Connor Wong made it 4-3 when he scored on a fielder's choice before Alex Verdugo grounded into a game-ending double play
Daniel Bard (2-0) earned the win for pitching a scoreless ninth, and Matt Carasiti worked the 10th to record his first save.
Boston's Christian Arroyo hit a solo home run that broke a 1-1 tie with one out in the seventh. It was his second home run of the season.
Colorado starting pitcher Connor Seabold held Boston to one run on six hits in six innings. He struck out six and walked one. Seabold, who pitched for the Red Sox in 2021 and 2022, has allowed no more than two runs while going at least five innings in each of his last three starts
The Rockies tied the game, 2-2, when Jurickson Profar doubled and scored on an Elias Diaz two-out single in the eighth. Profar's double was his third hit in the game
Boston starting pitcher James Paxton surrendered one unearned run on four hits in six-plus innings. He struck out eight. Paxton was pulled after he walked Jones, the first batter in the seventh.
McMahon doubled and later scored on a throwing error by shortstop Enrique Hernandez to give Colorado a 1-0 lead in the fourth inning. Boston tied the game in the sixth when Justin Turner drove in Verdugo with a one-out double.
